Aegion Corp. on June 24 announced that a subsidiary of the Energy Services segment, Schultz Industrial Services, has been awarded the mechanical construction services contract for a groundbreaking renewable diesel project at a California refinery.

Schultz will provide overall project management and installation of piping and associated equipment throughout the refinery in order to convert an existing processing unit to produce renewable diesel fuel.

Schultz has been the lead outsourced maintenance provider at the site since 2013.

Charles R. Gordon, Aegion’s president and CEO, said, “Schultz continues to successfully expand its construction and turnaround capabilities in California. We are honored to play a leading role in the first commercial-scale renewable diesel manufacturing facility in California, which will provide consumers with renewable fuels that comply with low-carbon fuel standards. With significant compliance and investment projects planned for California refiners over the coming years, Schultz is well positioned to serve this growing market.”
